Price drop...I had an interested local buyer, but the person went for another option. In the meantime, I spent the money while it was still a bird in the bush (who would do such a thing?) and bought another uke.
Price now is $220 shipped conUS--Paypal okay.
>>I'm also open to a trade for a concert uke with solid wood at least on the top.<<

I bought this Sailor Brand soprano new in June for $289. The quality and look of this instrument have gotten raves, and I agree with them, but somehow I didn't connect with this uke. That's just my ear and my chemistry with it (or maybe it's because I'm an Air Force brat--ha ha). But a girl needs to be in love to have a long-term relationship.

Here are the specs, though it now has Worth medium brown strings: http://cargo.ukerepublic.com/product/sailor-brand-soprano-spc-s
Note, you fingerpickers, that it has 14 frets. It has no dings, scratches or marks of use. It's heard only gentle, encouraging words.
Here's the sound sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Up8U4lBk1M

Comes with a thickly padded gig bag.

Hey GT3T11,
I was wondering what the over all length of this Uke is ?
Would this be a super soprano ?

Length of this uke, from top of headstock to base is 21-3/4 inches.

As I understand it, a super soprano is a soprano body with a concert neck. My husband's Kanelea concert fretboard from bottom of the nut to the 14th fret, where it touches the body, is a hair over 8-1/4 inches. The same measurement on the Sailor is 7-1/2 inches, so it's not technically a super soprano.
